In the moments that slipped by...

In the moments that slipped by...

A Poem by Relic's Bare Trees

                                                                                             

Each moment that slipped by
past my attention,
was a spiritual gift
I never noticed.

Short, sweet and very significant. Realization is very important as life will offer many more spiritual gifts in future.

I'm sure they will. Thank you for the comment.
Life does seem to fly by... hurried on by all that life brings us. Yet, the greater gift perhaps...understanding at times, moments may slip by...BUT, understanding what a gift life is...and be grateful for it. :-)

Sadly, there are so many that don't understand that.
Love this. Simple yet so profound once again. Time is something that passes us by so quickly and it is through our words that we are able to capture moments that are often lost in the ebb of life.

I forgot I wrote it. lol Thanks.
I like that you focus our attention on this mentality. You allow us to value the passage of time, which really allows for reflection on each of those little moments. I really like how you descried those moments as "spiritual gifts."

You're welcome.
I've thought about this a lot of times. I try to tell myself every second counts because like you said, sometimes I feel like I'm just letting every moment slip by and ignoring things. Maybe we don't appreciate spiritual gifts because we can't grasp what they truly mean because there is so much that's spiritual that we will never understand. I love how this made me think, and you only had to write a few lines to have an impact on me. Great job

This is so beautiful.
It pulls at the hearts strings, and makes ones soul cry for love.

Beautiful and sad. This shows how some of us overlook so much in life, When its the small things that are the most important ... The thing I love most about poetry is that a poem will mean different things to different people I like to read between the lines at the poems hidden within the in-between I have wrote a poem about just that ... A lot of my work is filled with metaphors I love the mystery of poetry
